Gujarat: BJP, AAP workers clash in Surat; two FIRs lodged for rioting, unlawful assembly
An FIR was lodged on Sunday against some 25 BJP workers for allegedly thrashing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) organisation secretary Ram Dhadhuk and six of his colleagues in Sarthana at around 10:30pm on Saturday, an official said.
Dhadhul claimed he and other party workers were returning from a programme when they were attacked with sticks and belts by a BJP mob on a road, adding that the group threatened to kill them if they indulged in campaigning again. The rioting was captured on CCTV.
Both FIRs were lodged on Sunday evening under IPC sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 147 (rioting), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of trust), and 506 (2) (criminal intimidation), the Sarthana police station official said.
The official added that no arrest has been made so far and probe was underway.
